Four Important Measurements to Take before You Move into Your Apartment

Have you finally found that apartment of your dreams to call your home?  After you sign your lease, you'll want to start preparing to move all of your furniture and belongings into your apartment.  However, many apartment owners make one big mistake when they first move into their place.  Forgetting to measure certain spaces is one of the most common mistakes that new renters make before they move into their apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL.  This can lead them to move bulky furniture that doesn't fit, belongings that don't have a space, or even small pieces that look strange in their large space.  To avoid these issues, there are a few measurements you should take before you move into your apartment.

Exterior Hallways

Although you may have though all about the space inside your apartment, you will want to be considerate of any exterior hallways that may pose limitations on moving day.  Narrow hallways are one of these considerations.  Take some time to note the dimensions of any exterior hallways that you'll need to walk through in order to get to your place.  This way, you can ensure all of your boxes, furniture, and large belongings can fit.

Doorways and Entryway

When it comes time for you to move your items into your doorway, you want to be sure that you have proper clearance to make it inside your unit.  This requires you to measure your door frame and entryway, especially if it is a narrow walkway.  By doing this in advance, you can disassemble any pieces of your furniture that will not fit before you actually move.   This will save you time on moving day and ensure that you get into your place smoothly without having to deconstruct furniture in the hall.

Interior Rooms

When it comes time for you to plan your arrangements and furniture placement, you will want to measure the interior rooms.  This will provide you with the information you need to properly furnish the space without leaving too much space or buying too bulky of furniture.  Also, this will help direct movers and any helpers on moving day.  When you have an idea of where the furniture will be placed, you can easily tell others where to go with their heavy items.

Stairways or Elevators

If you don't live on the ground floor, you'll need to use the stairs or elevators to travel to your apartment.  This is an important measurement to consider before you actually prepare to move.  By taking note of the width, height, and length of the elevator and staircase, you can deconstruct any large items to make sure they will fit.  

By taking these measurements before you move in, you will avoid many headaches once you finally get settled into your apartment.  If you are looking for quality apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL, contact us today to hear about our available and spacious units.
